Billy Hart Quartet @ Village Vanguard 3-8

As the veteran drummer’s foursome develops, the grace they broker becomes more essential to its personality. Can’t say if it’s the lithe horn lines of Mark Turner or the well-chosen asides of pianist Ethan Iverson, but the music on the newish One Is The Other  (ECM) has the kind of sweep that connects each passage to the next – it almost seems like one long piece. Of course Hart’s mastery at keeping everything fluid has a lot to do with it. On stage they’re a bit more tactile – and that physicality can be revelatory. Don’t miss.

8:30 pm & 10:30 pm.  $30. 178 Village Vanguard, 7th Avenue South.  212-255-4037
